Satan hates marriage, and believe that he will do his all to destroy it, in one way, shape, or form. The devil will cause arguments, discord, adulteries, drug and alcohol abuse, mental and emotional problems, lack of intimacy, lack of compassion, lack of edifying, lusts, selfishness, addictions, domestic abuse, isolation, grudges, no forgiveness, being unevenly yoked, and even hatred to bring destruction upon a marriage. Men and women need to be aware, focused, and prepared because Satan never takes a lunch break or a dinner break, recesses do not exist with the demonic, they are a 24/7 hindrance to all human beings who allow them entry, and satanic forces thrive on infiltrating marriages and bring them to ashes.
As husbands and wives of God, you need to become that double-edged sword you are meant to be, and cut the adversary in two. Protect what you are! Protect also yourselves! Believe me, there is no greater pain then a life ruined by Satan and it is we who willingly allow him to do it. We must also never walk right into something and believing it was from God. This is also a reason for many destructive marriages, people want to fill the gaps of feeling lonely and empty so they marry for the sake of having a partner in their lives, feeling secure, not because they are honoring the orchestration and perfect working of God for them. If you are a Christian who seeks after marriage with worldly emotions, you are signing the contract of your own self-destruction. You will never be full, happy, or gratified in your life. This is exactly where Satan wants you to be, because Satan preys upon desperate people, they tend to say “yes” to the devil, and as a result, they face ruination as people. So then, stand up for who you are, know who you are, and most of all KNOW YOUR GOD.
Life has been teaching me many valuable lessons I need to live by. If God is not the core of who I am as a living being, then I am nothing more than someone who is dead with an ability to walk. I have suffered great gains and I have also suffered great losses, and each of them has revealed to me the importance of God. He is important to us all. With that said, let Satan take nothing from you. The devil seeks to steal our rights, but it is God who gives them. What ever God gives should NEVER be taken from any of us!
It is written: “And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” (Genesis 2:21-25)
The devil has NO RIGHT to something as beautiful as this!
